How to Make Savory ~ Superb ~ Stuffed Eggplant - Cassies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degree F.

    Place eggplant in a shallow baking dish - I used a pie plate.

    Bake for 30 - 35 minutes. Remove from oven and cool.

    Once cool enough to work with, slice eggplant in half and remove the inside of the eggplant, leaving about 1/4 inch thick, of the shell.

    Chop up the eggplant and set aside.
  2. In a medium sized skillet, add 1 tablespoon or so of olive oil, brown sausage.

    When sausage is just about cooked, add a little more olive oil & add the spices, onion, garlic, eggplant, tomatoes,mushrooms & parsley and saute until vegetables are tender. Then add in 1/2 the cheese and bread crumbs...Toss to well combine and saute for about 1 more minute.
  3. Take your hollowed out eggplants and place back into shallow baking dish. Stuff each with the eggplant mixture.
  4. Top with remaining cheese and bake for another 15 - 20 minutes.
  5. Serve with a side of sauce and some sprinkles of cheese...this was absolutely delicious!
